Hunters Scout Troop

2019 PROGRAM

THURSDAY 14th November

 

This week we will be setting up Camp and running a whole Troop planning meeting at the Gilweroo campsite, Bay Park Mount Martha.  This is our normal Gilweroo camping spot at the Spider's Web.  

Those of you that have never been, drive in the main gate and go straight until you get to the lodge car park.  Turn right and drive down the hill past the volleyball courts and trading post metal shed (both on your left)  Then turn left on the dirt road and you should be able to see us parked on the grass area up a small hill.

7-9PM Parents more than welcome to stay and help :-)

Camp Transport and details 

We will need help transporting Scouts to an from the campsite on both the Friday night and Sunday afternoon.  We will meet at the hall from 6:30PM onwards on Friday for a 7PM Departure.  Sunday we believe the gates will open for cars around 3PM but we will confirm this over the weekend.

We currently need help moving 17 Scouts on Friday and 13 on Sunday.  If you are able to help with either of these journeys please email Hunters which day and how many Scouts you can fit in your car.  We will create a roster and email it to parents by Thursday night.

Even if you are not coming on this camp please attend the setup night.  We will have a whole Troop meeting at the end to discuss your ideas for the 2020 plan.  If you want your ideas heard then make sure you attend.

See you all Thursday

Our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles etc have some interesting jobs and hobbies that may be of interest to the scouts, which we could include in our program.  It can be a full night, or part of a night, we can always incorporate it into something else.  A tour of your work place or incorporated into our badge work.  If you have something to share, please let us know.

Scouts Activities

Both of our Scout troops have very busy programs of activities which include games and activities like pioneering skills, swimming, canoeing, climbing, ice skating, cooking competitions and archery. Also we usually have two or three weekend camps every term. These include activities such as rock climbing, water skiing, hiking, snow camp, mountain biking, surfing, canoeing, survival skills, rogaining and various competition camps.

Our trained leaders help the Scouts to learn the skills needed to achieve a series of badges and to become leaders within the Scout troop. The badge award scheme gives our Scouts a knowledge of basic Scouting skills and marks achievements in areas such as citizenship, campcraft, air and water activities and improving the environment.
